Will Blueface go to jail?
A judge can add another one to 20 years if the defendant used a deadly weapon, acted on behalf of a gang or the victim was aged 60 or older.
Discharging a firearm at an occupied building or vehicle is another category B felony that carries one to 10 years in prison and/or up to $5,000, according to Nevada law.
Each bullet fired also results in a separate charge so ten bullets would lead to ten individual charges for discharging a firearm.
If Blueface is convicted of attempted murder with a deadly weapon and discharging a firearm at/into an occupied structure he could face more than 20 years in prison.
